A change is a foot…….. or a few yards

It’s been a funny day.
Hubby and I both woke up around 2.40 this morning cold and shivering. His teeth were chattering and my feet were cold. Maggie was also chilled, so I covered her with the throwover and we snuggled into each other. The heating kicked in and we all managed to get back to sleep until about 6.50.

This morning was frosty, but the sun was coming out and it promised to be a nice day with temperatures of around 3º C and no wind chill.
We decided to walk up into town after the window guy had been to measure up for the blown pane in the bedroom. Cheaper than we thought at £70, so very doable, and even if we had to replace all the panes individually, it still works out a lot cheaper than having new double glazing.

We donned our yellows, so were like three bananas walking up the road.
It was lovely and warm in the sun, so a pleasant walk. We only wanted a couple of sets of memory foam insoles for our shoes, so just a one shop stop.
The change when we came out was amazing.
Now grey and overcast, it was cold too and we were glad of our jackets.
Walking home, the road ahead was becoming fuzzy as it was engulfed in mist . We have since found out this was probably advection fog which is caused by the movement of moist warm air over a cool surface such as the ocean (the joys of living by the sea).
We increased our pace as best we could as we all have mobility restrictions one way or another now, and just hoped we got home before anything nasty started to fall. It was phenomenal to watch the change occurring so fast in front of us!

Since getting home, the sun has definitely given up for the day and drizzle is due to start in four minutes, turning to rain within an hour and a half according to Accuweather.
I’m out at darts tonight and it’s going to be cold. Luckily we are playing at home so not too far. Hope I’ve got a full team tonight.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
